Wonder Friends

I have a friend who knows the stars

who speaks to ravens, chucks otters

under chins, owns boots that

walk him right on up to miracles,

buried in the earth. I have a friend

who weaves long grasses into

fabric you would weep for,

spreads cadmium blue into

the sky and worships toads.

I know a child who speaks with

rabbits as easily as we pick up

a phone, and labels trees with

badges made of moss.  I have

a friend who nourishes the creeks

with dandelion wine to save the fishes,

and writes poetry on stones.
